Keeping Families Together

Keeping Families Together is a Wandsworth charity who provide a community and a safe environment to help young people detach themselves from gang culture and to help keep them in education.

They also offer support for parents including training, workshops, and administration to alleviate loneliness and help families stay together during difficult times, including families under Wandsworth social services.

Keeping Young People in School

This is support for young people who are about to be excluded from school, including children with autism who may lack the additional support they need. Referrals can be made by the parents, a teacher, social services or other charities. They go into schools in Wandsworth and carry out group or one-on-one sessions, listening to why young people are having behaviour problems and to find the underlining causes. They then work together with the children, school, parents and social services if they are involved, to provide alternative solutions before exclusion.

Keeping Families Together

Provision of help for families who are in the Wandsworth social services system, for both child protection and child in need meetings that take place at Wandsworth Council. They work closely with social services, schools and other professionals, and also with parents, to move the family forward and reduce the risk of social services removing the child. They take self-referrals from parents as well as Children's Social Services and other charities. This is an early intervention project. The earlier a referral is received, the better the chance of supporting the family to the best of their ability.
